Revealing the kinematics and origin of ionized winds using RRL masers

  • Alejandro Báez-Rubio (a1)

Abstract

The detection of hydrogen radio-recombination maser lines (RRLs) toward MWC349A in the year 1989 opened the chance to place constraints on the kinematics of an ionized circumstellar disk around a massive star. Since then, a significant number of observations have allowed improving our understanding of this source to the point that we have established that its ionized wind launching occurs at a distance of ~24 au as claimed by disk wind models. On the other hand, this field of study has undergone considerable development over the last six years with the detection of new RRL maser sources. Here, we present a brief summary of all these recent advances and the promising future prospects.
